TEPCO Accused of Hiding High Radiation Levels before Explosion at Reactor No. 3
Japan's Asahi Shimbun reports that the operator of the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex hid records after confirming high levels of radiation inside reactor No. 3 before the hydrogen explosion took place.
The daily says that it acquired TEPCO's documents of changes observed every minute within the reactors' buildings from March 11th to April 30th.
Data shows that on March 13th, two days before the hydrogen explosion occurred, radiation levels of 3-hundred millisieverts per hour were detected, which is higher than the 250 millisieverts limit set for nuclear plant workers.
